Zapf Dingbats Most computers should already have a copy of Zapf Dingbats pre-installed. If you don t have Zapf Dingbats it can be purchased from numerous online retailers. If you do not have Zapf Dingbats and do not wish to purchase it, the only Paragraph Styles that use it are the bulleted lists named Bullet List Medium Dots Gray and Bullet List Medium Blue simply use a different list style.
There are 10 master pages with varying column grids to choose from. The Master Pages allow for great flexibility in your layout. From completely blank pages for full page advertisements, 1-6 column grids, and some wide margin grids for those special designs.
An advertising system has been incorporated into the overall design of the template making it easy to sell advertising into your magazine or newsletter. A separate CM Advertising Lib.indl file has been provided which houses placeholders for all advertising sizes.
